    I just upgraded my wife's computer to a mobo with a PCI-E port on which I put a Sapphire 850XT vid card. Now, however, when we try to play the original Empire Earth, it moves too quickly. The sound in the beginning plays like a record on the wrong speed. The game play is impossible to manage, as the view zips from one end of the screen to another.

    I've heard of similar issues when trying to play DOS games on modern systems, and the fix is a DOS box, but in this situation, I don't know what to do.

    The game is fully updated as is Direct X, the vid card drivers, etc. Would it help to revert to an older version of Direct X? Can that even be done?

    Thanks in advance for any help.
